as the new york times said today as the tragedy in connecticut has softened the times. maybe it takes something like this to get the congress and the president to work on things. there does seem to be a spirit of compromise now brewing. i'm not just talking about the end of the year, but any time. the president perhaps holding off raising taxes for those who make $200,000. especially when coupled about this rumored embrace about spending cuts. that could turn the fiscal cliff into a fiscal hop, skip and a jump that ends up in an exciting place. there are other forces at work today that show you the magnitude of what a deal could mean for our great country. the other forces? the transports, banks, u.s. treasury bonds and gold. first, you know i like to watch the transports as a measurement of economic activity. you know it has to be shipped somewhere to be sold. that is why i follow the transports so closely. when they are going up it means there is more commerce happening than thought. planes, trains, truckers and shippers going higher, that above all, is a terrific predictor of growt

in connecticut, please, chris? >> caller: boo-yah. i want to know where you stand on -- >> i don't know, where i stand, it's already too high. this thing does not come in. i would prefer you to be in eqt, which i think i reiterated this morning and i think is much better. there are lots of people who say there will be blockbuster natural gas deals coming down the road and that's why cabot stays high, plus incredible marcellus holdings. when i first heard about it, it was through cog and i thought it was like veal, but it turned out to be a good place for natural gas. that is the conclusion of the "lightning round"! >> the "lightning round" is sponsored by td ameritrade. >>> coming up -- waiting for washington to rise above? get your portfolio prepared for whatever happens. call, tweet, or e-mail and find your way to the latest edition of "am i diversified." isk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he

, connecticut. our words can do little to ease your pain. but you know this. we are with you in this incredible difficult time. and recognize that you are who we are thinking about, even as we try to focus on our work today. so as for the markets, it was another weak day. dow dipped 36 points. s&p gave up .41%. nasdaq declined .70. a lot of that again because of apple. you know the drill as we head into the weekend. i'm not expecting to hear any progress on the fiscal cliff. but you know, i always watch the sunday morning talk shows now very closely and i'm looking for some politicians saying something encouraging. what does encouraging mean? it means a republican uttering the two words tax increase without the word no before it. and the democrats uttering two words, spending cuts, without the word no before them. neither seems to be able to pull off that syntax, though. at this point i think we've got to assume that the washington people, they can't get it together. we've got to gird ourselves for a cliff, make sure that we understand what the dive will look like, and focus on things that are
